CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Police searched Tuesday for a Virginia Tech student who hasn’t been seen since she was separated from her friends at a Metallica concert Saturday.

Morgan Dana Harrington, 20, was last seen near the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. Her parents said they talk to her every day and her disappearance is very out of character.

“Morgan is a pretty transparent kid, who’s had a really close relationship with us,” her father, Dan Harrington, said in a phone interview Tuesday. “I don’t think there are lots of secrets, so this kind of behavior of (her) missing is not something I think we would expect.”

Dan Harrington, who lives in Roanoke, said his daughter had asked him to help her study for a math test and go through the class schedule for next semester on Sunday. He called her friends around 12:30 p.m. when he realized he had not heard from her.

Police said Morgan Harrington, a junior majoring in education, was wearing a black T-shirt with “Pantera” across the front in tan letters, a black mini skirt, black tights and black knee-high boots.

She has long blonde hair and blue eyes, is 5-foot-6 and weighs about 120 pounds. She was not carrying an identification card or cell phone.

Investigators are treating the disappearance as a missing person case, said Virginia State Police Lt. Joe Rader.

“We have no evidence that a crime has been committed,” he said.
